Langtang and Helambu

I want to hike the Langtang Valley route.
If I can find someone who is keen, I’d love to head south from Kyanjin Gompa to Ganja La and possibly Tarkeghyang, to loop around to Laurebina Pass and Gosainkunda.

I’m an avid backpacker. I spend every weekend in the mountains. I have all the necessary camping/mountaineering gear.

I like fairly long days and am used to climbing lots of elevation, but I don’t have experience above 3500m, so unfortunately, I’m not sure how I’ll react.

  1. Hi Taisa, Are your dates fixed on leaving Kathmandu on the 29th October? Do you intend on carrying all your own gear?

  2. Hi;

    the acclimatization..

  3. Hey Taisa,

    Are your dates flexible? I land in Kathmandu on October 24th, and have to be back in Kathmandu on November 1st. I’m hoping to get as much trekking in as possible during this time. I too an avid backpacker and gained my mountain legs while living in the mountains of Crowsnest Pass, AB, which you might be aware of, being Canadian. I have lots of altitude experience and am able to keep a fairly quick pace. I’ve been looking at trekking Langtang due to the time window. Let me know what you think.

    Cheers,
    Jackie

    • I couldn’t find anyone with mountaineering experience, so I changed my dates and decided to do Manaslu instead. Too bad, that would have been fun!

  4. Sorry, my dates have actually changed. I need to figure out how to take this post down.
